Patron Book Reviews by Kristi

Kristi's Reviews:

Well written and beautiful story about Alaskan homesteaders and their dreams of becoming parents. I would have liked it more if the “fantasy” aspect [had] been omitted.

Train Dreams by Denis Johnson
In only 116 pages the author reveals the tormented soul of a lonely but hard working man in the American Northwest in [the] early 1900s.

The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout
Strout is a[t] great character development. Good read but “Olive Kitteridge” and “Amy and Isabelle” were better than this one.

An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser
Too long. Too wordy.
